This was a recommendation from friends who visited the previous week. The food was first class and the fact that they catered for gluten free was excellent and this was no problem.

Have put off going to this place for many years as it is very uninspiring from the outside and a couple of visits for morning coffee in the bar were pretty unimpressive. The place has won many awards of the years and always gets recommended so decided to give it the benefit of the doubt Firstly there was a very... More

We spent 5 nights at the hotel in a very comfortable Superior Room with veranda across from the pool. The staff were very friendly, made us most welcome and easily looked after our every need - especially as one of us started to develop acute sciatica during our visit and was unable to sit at the dining room table. However... More

What is there not to like about Le Barbarie? The food is superb. Dad had half a lobster and 3 of us had the most tender, delicious belly pork. Desserts were sublime. The service is good old fashioned, good manners and courteous but friendly. The restaurant is cosy but airy. Perfection all round

The restaurant is attractive and the service excellent. We were very well looked after by Evo, Raivis all the staff involved. Compliments to Chef for producing mouth watering dishes. The Table D'Hote and A La Carte menus had good choices to suit all tastes and you can choose from either of the menus. I had many of the fish dishes... More

I've just spent 5 nights at La Barbarie and ate here on each night. The restaurant has a wonderful range of dishes, the menu options change nightly and there are specials. There is lots of local fish on the menu and the cheese board features local cheeses. The food was the highlight of my visit!! There is also a very... More

Nice restaurant with a good choice of dishes on the menu. They tend to specialise in fish and seafood dishes, but the steaks look good too. The food is tasty, and the service is good.

We went here for a bar meal and while the quality of the food was generally very good, each course was let down by the 'finishing' in the kitchen. First up was chicken lover parfait with 'toast' only it was 2 triangles of pappy sliced white bread which had probably been somewhere near a toaster as it had no colour... More
